Are you weak in your dreams or so strong you can manage any physical feat required of you? If you are feeling weak, a medical check-up might be required, but it could also suggest that you feel somehow less than perfect in waking life and unable to accomplish what is required of you. Dreams in which you simply can’t keep up with the action or are outrun by the bogey man are experienced more frequently as you age, and may well be your dreaming mind’s way of helping you adjust to the natural aging process.
If your dreams often feature themes of illness or loss of strength and you are concerned by these, see your doctor by all means; the chances are, however, that you feel unable to meet some internal or external commands in waking life. In your dreams, your unmet goals and high standards are making you ill. But dreams in which you have boundless energy and physical power seem to be telling you that you are capable of far more than you realize. In some cases, as with people who are seriously ill or disabled, dreams of extraordinary energy and good health are compensatory or wish- fulfillment dreams.
If, in your dream, you are weak because you have lost weight, this can suggest concern about body image but it can also indicate possessive, demanding behavior from the people in your life. Conversely, gaining weight and strength may show an excessive need for their approval and a childish need for instant gratification. Finally, if other people are watching either your feats of strength or growing weakness in your dream, this suggests that you are preoccupied with themes of competition.

The waves in dreams may represent emotional fluctuations.
If you are currently experiencing a period of tranquillity and peace, you may be dreaming about calm waters and gentle ocean waves. This dream suggests that you may be gathering energy and recharging emotionally. However, more commonly people dream of violent and dangerous tidal waves. Tidal waves or tsunamis suggest a period of emotional upheaval. Anxiety, stress, and unconscious materials may be coming to the surface and affecting your daily moods. Giant tidal waves may symbolize current emotional unhappiness and psychological stress, which are threatening to destroy you.
The outcome of this dream may reveal how much strength you have to “ride out” personal storms.
For example, surviving the tidal wave suggests that you have enough strength to overcome challenges and drowning that you may be “in it over your head” and should seek assistance.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
When dreaming of waves, notice the type of wave. Calm, clear waves indicate inner peace of mind. You are in touch with your emotions and are stable.

Waves represents the threatening and sometimes stormy activity of the conscious, but also symbolizes a transcendent, open, and expressive emotion. To notice that you are being carried away by the waves indicates a passive attitude toward the circumstances, as minutiae easily distract you from your goals. By contrast, choppy waves announce a possible emotional conflict. Everything indicates that will jealousy and envy arise, and that aggressive outburst could occur at any time. However, this situation will be temporary. On the other hand, to dream that you walk over the waves predicts you will overcome the obstacles that separate you from your goal.

Energy moves in waves, and any dream that features this motion is connected to the fundamental structure behind all movement. Waves in water are about emotional fluctuations. Waves that are more related to the physical laws of the universe are similar, but are more about thoughts and shifts of intellect. When waves are easy to navigate, all is well, as you can easily allow yourself to move with them. However, they can suddenly become overwhelming in the dream world, and if this occurs, you are examining your relationship to things beyond your ability to control.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
